The previous owner tied him outside to guard his farm. The owner went to feed him 3 or 4 times a week or sometimes even once a week. While he was tied outside, he was attacked by stray dogs which made him to have a traumatic experience. Doori feels threatened by bigger dogs. When he meets a dog for the first time, he just starts out by growling but this is what he has developed over time to protect himself. If the other dog doesn’t show aggression, then Doori gets along well. The rescuers took him to a trainer who said Doori may get into a trouble if he lives with another dog that’s hostile to him, so it is recommended to have him as a lonely child in the house.
Overall, Doori loves people and is calm. He prefers dogs smaller than his size and growls at bigger dogs. (The trainer says it is a traumatic behavior from being tied outside for a long time) If the other dog is friendly, he gets along well. He is very good with his favorite doggy friends.
